Costs and Length of Stay

Tariffs are modest and in line with the Victorian Patient Transport Assistance Scheme (VPTAS) rebate rates. VPTAS provides financial subsidies to eligible patients living in rural and regional Victoria who need to travel long distances to access medical specialist services. Our staff can assist you with further information to claim the rebate if you are eligible. We will do our very best to meet your accommodation needs during your cancer care and treatment at BRICC. Accommodation resources at Pleasant Apartments and Rotary House can at times be limited. We encourage patients and families to seek information about available accommodation services as early as possible in your treatment pathway.
